Anthony Thigpenn: “When you think about building power and the multiple dimensions of power, voting and elections in this society are fundamental. And if we’re serious about building power to a public policy body, an elected official, or to our members, they will say, “Well, how are you serious about building power? We understand all of the other things that we do, but here is a fundamental way that power is exercised, and we’re not doing anything systematic around it. So at each level, whether it’s our members and leaders, whether elected officials or other public policy folks, doing the voter participation work has to be a fundamental part of our vision for building and empowering communities.”
